Media Release

Nominations Now Open for Afro Caribbean Culture Awards

KINCARDINE, ON – The Municipality of Kincardine are excited to be collaborating with community partners Bruce County Library and Museum, Bruce Power, NPX, Kincardine District Secondary School, and the Grey Bruce Immigration Partnership, as they host the first Afro Caribbean Youth Culture Awards.

The awards celebrate Afro Caribbean youth living in Grey and Bruce Counties. The award ceremony will take place on Saturday, October 21, 2023, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Davidson Centre in Kincardine.

The event will feature internationally recognized poet Dwayne Morgan, a two-time Canadian National Poetry Slam Champion. The topic of Dwayne’s keynote will be “Inspiring Courageous Conversations.” Registration for this event opens in September.

The youth of today are the leaders, innovators, and changemakers of the future, and as part of the Afro Caribbean diaspora of Grey and Bruce, we understand and acknowledge a strengthened lifeline created from safe places wherein historically racialized cultures can thrive. All are welcome to come celebrate and enjoy good fellowship with one another.
